96 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY 18eptember

CALENDARS FOR 1932

Officers in charge and individuals reporting direct t~o Washington will please
indicate in their stores requisitions for December 1 orders for the wall calendars
that they will require for the year 1932. One wall enlendar should be sufficient
for each room occupied as office or laboratory, and orders should be for the
minimum number.
The bureau has discontinued the purchase of desk-calendar pads and stands for
field stations. However, stations now equipped with such stands may procure
pads for the same for 1932 by ordering on their stores requisitions for December 1
the number required, indicating the make of the stand for which intended--that
is, whether Gem, Handy, Daily, etc. These calendars and pads may not be
forwarded with the other supplies ordered on such requisitions, but an effort will
be made to get them to the stations before the first of the newr year.
In this connection attention is called to the notice headed "Advertising matter
not allowed in Government offices," in Serv'ice and Regulatory Announcements
for November, 1915, page 127.


PAYMENT OF CLAIMS UNDER DIFFERENT CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE

Attention is invited to the following quotation from a letter from the General
Accounting Office dated September 5, 1931:
Payment of more than one invoice on one voueber, if under ditferent conditions of purchase as to method
of ad vertising, etc., or under more than one contract, is not in accordance with the provisions of paragraph
4, General Regulations, No. 51 (5 Comp. Gen. 10)59) and should be dijc~ontinued.
Each voucher should cover items purchased under a single contract or a single met hod of purchase only,
and contractors should be instructed to render invoices accordingly.v
As an illustration of the meaning of the above quotation, it may be stated that
claim for the purchase of supplies under a contract should not be submitted on
the same \-oucher as a claim for purchases in the open market, even though the
purchases wrere made from the same dealer. Or claim for the storage of an auto-
mobile under an agreement should not appear on the same voucher as a claim for
repairs or supplies for the au~to.
Failure to observ~e these instructions wlill necessitate returning vouchers.
